John Hunter is released from prison after serving sixteen years for a murder he didn't commit. He's had plenty of time to plan his revenge against the people who framed him.

Bill Moore is a real estate agent in Florida. He's successful and loves his wife but wants more. One day he notices a paper on his desk with the word "MODIFIED" on it.

He doesn't think anything about it but soon after a series of things happen and his life changes. Something appears on his computer and his wife becomes very upset. An appointment with an important client results with the client not showing and the client's secretary denying that she made the appointment. People begin dieing around him and he becomes a suspect in the disappearance of a man.

Michael Marshall has written an intelligent novel that is a puzzle that the reader must try to solve.
What is the connection between John Hunter, the missing man and Bill Moore?

The action moves along at a breakneck pace that seduces the reader and yet, nothing is as it seems.

The author brings up good points about greed in society and that wealthy people believe that they won't be held accountable for their deeds. The dialogue is right on but only the two main characters are well developed, the others aren't much more than names.

The plot is complicated and unpredictable and yet it is still unimaginably addictive.

Now, as the cab drives away from the prison, he knows that his first order of business is to get a gun. The second is to start using it.      Bill Moore is a pretty successful real estate …
